Daddy Long Legs by Nadine Brun-Cosme -- OPTIONAL

Brun-Cosme, Nadine Daddy Long Legs, illustrated by Auriélie Guillerey. PICTURE BOOK. Kids Can Press, 2017. $15.95. Content: G.

A young boy wonders what will happen if his father's old green truck doesn't start when it's time to be picked up from kindergarten. In reply, the father lists the many different ways he can come for the boy, including driving his neighbor's big red tractor or being carried by all of the birds in the nearby trees.

This book, translated from the French version, addresses a common concern among many children who are just starting school. Because it is aimed at kindergarteners but is not necessarily a new-to-school story, its audience may be limited, but it's a cute tale nonetheless.
